Assignment: Each student is to prepare and present a PowerPoint presentation that informs the class about two assigned infectious diseases as well as prepare 10 multiple choice questions that will be answered during the student presentation.

Guidelines for PowerPoint presentation:

8-12 minutes long (points will be deducted for going over/under time)

Must be saved as a PowerPoint document and saved as last name and diseases (ex. Lindsey polio, measles)

Should be visually appealing (use color, nice backgrounds, pictures (gross is good))

Be well presented: do not simply read slides or notes. You may bring notes to the podium but try not to read them word for word (in other words, practice)

Topics for each disease must include:

o Name of disease and a brief history

o Signs and symptoms

o Pathogenesis and virulence factors (what makes that bacteria/virus cause disease, etc.)

o Transmission and epidemiology (includes morbidity, mortality and prevalence rates for the diseases)
